Nicknamed “Bob” by Verizon, the developer worked at a critical infrastructure company in the U.S.
However, the Verizon folks say he also attempted to perform this liberating ploy simultaneously on other companies — presumably he was accepting freelance projects on the side.
What some might find amusing — or even dispiriting — is that his employers valued him highly, as the work was of an excellent standard.
Meanwhile, Bob’s trousers were being handsomely filled, as he was paying the Chinese a mere 20 percent of what the work would cost in the U.S., Verizon said.
“Developer allegedly outsources his whole job to China, fired” (CNet, Jan. 16)
So he outsourced his own work to a Chinese dude for just 20 percent of what he was making, freeing him up to take a whole bunch of freelance projects … which he also outsourced?!?
This man is a GOD.
